May is for melanoma awareness - Dermatology and Skin Health is here to help

Request a Visit

May is a very busy month for Dermatology and Skin Health as it works to spread the word about skin health and skin cancer prevention.

Coinciding with Melanoma Awareness Month, Dermatology and Skin Health will be offering skin cancer screenings, free of charge, on May 4 and May 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Frisbee Memorial Hospital in Rochester and Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover. Call for your 5 minute appointment -  603-740-2818.

If you’ve got questions about melanoma, Dermatology and Skin Health, and the American Academy of Dermatology have answers. Refer to and for more comprehensive information.

Here are some starters:

The least common type of skin cancer, melanoma, is the most deadly. While it's least common over all, it is the MOST common form of cancer among 25 to 29-year-olds. Melanocytes, the cells in the bottom layer of the epidermis, produce melanin, which is responsible for skin pigmentation.

Melanomas often present as dark brown or black spots on the skin and they spread rapidly to internal organs and the lymph system, making them quite dangerous.
One thing is key: early detection of skin cancer is critical. And that’s where skin checks come in.

Visit to see what a skin check entails. And make your appointment now for a free 5 minutes skin check at either Wentworth Douglass Hospital or Frisbee Hospital on May 4 and 6.

Dermatology and Skin Health’s outreach doesn’t stop with its free skin cancer screenings.

The following activities will also take place during the month of May:

-Saturday, May 2, members of Dermatology and Skin Health will visit Dover Honda and Dover Chevrolet during customer appreciation days and conduct a skin health demonstration. There will be a cookout as well.

-Wednesday, May 13, 6 to 7 p.m., Dermatology and Skin Health will present The Dangers of Tanning Beds. This community education event held in conjunction with Wentworth Douglass Hospital of Dover may make you look at tanning beds/booths a little differently. Refreshments and giveaways. The presentation will be held at Dermatology and Skin Services.
